Lancaster Police say woman lied about abduction

LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) — Police in central Pennsylvania say a woman lied when she called 911 from inside a car trunk to say she had been abducted by two men.

Lancaster City Police said Thursday they were charging 33-year-old Marie Collazo of New Holland with making a false report to law enforcement and false alarms to agencies of public safety.

Police say electronic and video records contradict Collazo’s account of being abducted from a city parking lot on Tuesday and driven to a park, then assaulted and locked in the trunk.

Collazo didn’t appear to have a listed phone number, and it wasn’t clear whether she was represented by a lawyer.

The case triggered a massive search for the supposed abductors.
